UD for Hebrew

Tokenization and Word Segmentation





Word Order

The canonical word order in Hebrew is SVO. However, this generalization is flexible, as accusative and oblique case marking allow free order with respect to subject, verb and objects. Furthermore, there are various specific constructions in which different word orders are more common (מחר יגיע אורח ‘tomorrow will arrive a guest’ is more in use than מחר אורח יגיע ‘tomorrow a guest will arrive’ though both are perfectly grammatical). In other constructions the SVO word order is ungrammatical, such as the Hebrew existential construction which surfaces as VOS (יש לו המיומנות הנחוצה להיות מושל).
